On March 11, 2020, NBEF held a workshop for a packed room of seniors (nearly 100 attended) at New Brunswick High School (NBHS) who gathered to hear about NBEF’s Scholarship Program and College & Young Professional Network.
Since 2007, NBEF has awarded college scholarships to more than 450 New Brunswick youth, totaling $561,600.00. The organization also prides itself with a growing network of college students and young professionals who are all alumni of NBHS and New Brunswick Health Sciences Technology High School. NBEF launched its trailblazing “College & Young Professional Network” in 2011 with 11 college students and this component has now grown to over 300 active members, including: (1) high school seniors; (2) college students; (3) graduate school students; and (4) young professionals (all from New Brunswick).
NBEF is pleased to award scholarships this year (in spite of challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic). The scholarships will be presented via a virtual production being planned for some time in July and more details will soon be announced.
